Amal Alamuddin: George Clooney’s Anti-Israel Druze Arab Chick; My Encounter w Her & Alamuddin Family – EXCLUSIVE

By Debbie Schlussel

Over the past few months, actor George Clooney’s been photographed all over the place with Amal Alamuddin, a very anti-Israel Lebanese Arab who worked for the United Nations and represented Wikileaks’ anti-American former chief, Julian Assange. The Lebanese legal book she authored is extremely anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian. Alamuddin, who was Clooney’s date to the Obama White House last month, is not Muslim. She’s Druze, which is an offshoot of Islam. I’m familiar with Ms. Alamuddin (pronounced “Ah-lah-muh-DEEN”) and her family because I met her and them at the wedding of her cousin in the mid-1990s. They are extremely anti-Israel, and I was subjected to their absurd, non-stop anti-Israel questions and comments as the only non-Arab (other than the bride and her family) at a dinner the night before the wedding.


Amal Alamuddin: George Clooney’s Anti-Israel Sharmutah

I went to law school with Alamuddin’s cousin (who has the same last name) and the cousin’s wife. I was friends with the cousin’s wife (who is not an Arab), and when they were dating in law school, I repeatedly heard from him about how he hated Israel and sided with the Palestinians and the P.L.O. Later, when I was invited to the the Alamuddin wedding, I was on the receiving end of more of that. As I noted, I was the only non-Arab at the pre-wedding dinner at Chicago’s now-defunct “Uncle Tonoose” restaurant. They all knew I was Jewish, and the conversations and questions directed at me were a mix of myself as both Jewish museum exhibit and target of anti-Israel questioning. Clooney’s future girlfriend was there, too, and she was in her late teens at the time (I was in my mid-20s).

The situation with the Alamuddin family was surreal, as I was asked repeatedly about “Jewish Europeans” “invading” Israel, er . . . “Palestine.”

That was funny, since at least a third of the Arabs at the table–the extended Alamuddin family and their friends–were blondes whose mothers were Swiss, Scandinavian, English, or of other European extraction. That’s especially true of those who were engaging in this cross-examination on alleged Jewish eugenics in Israel, er . . . “Palestine.” One of them, Nabil, was so blond he was what I would call “white blond,” and had bright green eyes. Many of these individuals lived in and were brought up in Europe in chalets, upper crust London flats, and at fancy boarding schools. They were more European than 75% of the citizens of Israel at the time–those who were kicked out of Arab countries and those who descended from families living in Israel for centuries. I was introduced to one of the guys at the table, an Alamuddin who was the first cousin of the groom and is also a cousin to Clooney’s latest moll. The guy was blond with blue eyes, as was his sister. I was told that this guy is a colonel in the Lebanese Air Force (such as Lebanon even has one of those). He and his sister grew up in Switzerland. But, yeah, let’s harp on the “evil European Jewish interlopers” in Israel. The irony–no, the utter hypocrisy–was thick.

The Alamuddin clan also asked me about alleged “racism” in Israel by Ashkenazic Jews (primarily Jews from Europe) against Sephardic Jews (primarily Jews from Arab countries, Africa, and Asia). I pointed out that, in fact, the reason there are so many Sephardic Jews in Israel is that they were treated a whole lot worse–expelled, and before that raped, murdered, and so on–by their “fellow” citizens in Arab nations. I also responded that they are treated a whole lot better in Israel (and nowadays, it’s really not much of a distinction at all anymore in Israel). Predictably, there was no response by the Alamuddins to how they and their countrymen, for instance, treated the Jews of Lebanon. If you need a refresher on this, check out my work on “What Happened to the Jews of Lebanon?” and learn about the deadly fate of Sephardic Jews like Ibrahim, Yehouda, and Yossef Benesti and Isaac Tarab and Haim Halala Cohen. Mr. Benesti’s “crime,” by the way, was handing out free candy from his store to children of all religions (including Muslims). Oh, and being a Jew. Needless to say, I held my own with this table of Jew-haters, whose disdain for and amusement with me, as the token “minstrel Jew” at the table, was quite apparent.

The Alamuddin family is a very wealthy, prominent Lebanese family that helped found Middle East Airlines and owned a good deal of Lebanon’s utilities. The family is also very prominent in the leadership of the Druze sect. The Alamuddin family patriarch, Sheikh Najib Alamuddin, became Chairman and CEO of Middle East Airlines in 1951, and he was very pro-Palestinian because a Palestinian-owned bank was a large investor in the airline. Alamuddin also blamed the 1967 Six Day War (and Israel’s impressive victory in it) for the near collapse of the airline. The Alamuddin wedding and reception I attended were so fancy and lavish, it looked to me like the festivities easily cost several hundred thousand dollars. All of it took place at Chicago’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Everyone there was “Sheikh” So-and-So or “Sheikha” So-and-So. It was like being at a Gulf State palace.

A little more about the Druze. Their religion is secretive, and they believe in the transmogrification of the soul. Their only similarities to Islam are the proscription against the consumption of pig products (which Muslims got from Judaism) and their observance of the two Muslim “eids” or festivals. Their bible is not the koran but the “Kitab Al Hikma” (Book of Wisdom). They are usually loyal to the country in which they live. One of my closest and most trusted friends is Druze and risked his life thousands of times to help Israel against the bad guys. Then, he did the same for America against the same bad guys. Whenever I’ve needed his help, he’s been there.

The Druze in Israel, for example, are very loyal to Israel and are allowed to serve in the Israeli Army. A Dr. Ruth Westheimer-narrated documentary, “The Olive and the Tree: The Secret Strength of the Druze,” about Israel’s Druze population (primarily in the Golan) is a great testament to Israel’s diversity and tolerance which is unmatched anywhere in the Middle East. (I could not find a link to the DVD for purchase, so the above link is to the companion book.)

However, the Druze in Lebanon, including the Alamuddins, are loyal to . . . ? Well, that depends. Sadly, the leader of the Druze in Lebanon, Walid Jumblatt, is something of a whore, and he’s all over the map. He’s gone back and forth from supporting Syria and Hezbollah, then the Christian-Sunni coalition opposing them in Lebanon. He cannot be trusted. Even though the Syrians murdered his father, Kamal Jumblatt, who was then the leader of Lebanon’s Druze, Walid Jumblatt had no problem allying with, aiding, and abetting the Syrians and their henchmen in Hezbollah. Some Druze are also active in the Syrian National Socialist Party, a terrorist group that set off car bombs and attacked Israel.

The Alamuddins have similar allegiances. But they are definitely very anti-Israel. As I learned in my own experience at the Alamuddin wedding.

And, so, I suppose it’s very fitting that far leftist, Obama superfan George Clooney would have a virulently anti-Israel Arab girlfriend.

I wonder if she gets satisfaction knowing that she’s just the latest sperm receptacle, er . . . concubine, slated for future disposal when he quickly gets sick of her and his Hollywood liberal elite Arabian Nights fantasy becomes boring. Just like all the others in the “George Clooney Harem Diaspora.”

Hmmm . . . maybe she should wear a Clooney slave bracelet. Just sayin’.

No self-respecting, healthy-minded woman, attorney or otherwise, would ever be involved with the likes of George Clooney–so when the tabloids proclaim that Clooney’s “met his match,” he has indeed.

Miles, seriously? Read more truths.

What a blog. Are you Debbie, planning to author a book by first practicing writing blogs? Well, if yes, I suppose your book will be full of sick rants. Very sorry you spend so much time trying to write up this article. But its so sad.

Arianna on May 7, 2014 at 10:20 pm

    Why sad?!

    Persiana on May 8, 2014 at 12:22 am

To Debbie! I just have one thing to say… You and the entire state of Israel are the biggest SHARMUTAHS!!!!!! You should be thankful to the European blood to be mixed with, that made you, the ugliest looking people in the world, look like a little less ugly. And you have some nerve commenting on the this lebanese family being mixed? Go look at yourself in the mirror first before you open your mouth, bint el Sharmutha.

    Truth hurts novel. Live with it.

    benoy on May 16, 2014 at 9:16 pm

I think you need to get over yourself Debbie! It’s not all about Debbie today!

cynder on May 12, 2014 at 5:03 pm

George can’t run away now. That would be an insult to her and the family. He isn’t just marrying her but the whole family and issues. He will get a culture shock.

jess on May 14, 2014 at 4:37 am

The editor or writer of this story fails to inform her readers that Amal might hate Jews but Jews also hate Arabs… Jews make jokes about Arabs that they are less smart… also, she called Arabs terrorists yet she fails to inform people that Israel is constently bombarding the Gaza strip and killing women and children everyday… Israel does never conforms to the U.N. resolutions and violates all kinds international law but no one can say or touch Israel about this… The U.S. Congress and banks are owned and ruled by Jews and the media can never speak about Israel because they are too owned by Jews.

Adam on May 14, 2014 at 7:43 am

    Adam,everything you just said is SO TRUE! I wish more people were more politically educated and knew more about the jews and all the harm they do to planet earth,israel shame on you!!!

    Balkan on May 26, 2014 at 4:13 pm

      Seriously? Educated? If only. Shame on you, you are nothing but a hate- monger, a pure, unapologetic racist and anti- Semite. Stop pretending it’s about Israel’s policies and go join the KKK or the neo-Nazis (that is– if you haven’t already). I’m sure you have protesting just as mightily the atrocities committed in Iran, Syria, the Ukraine, as you are Israel trying to stop an endless barrage of rocket fire from a militant group openly trying to destroy her. Of course you are- you are no doubt petitioning the UN to sanction North Korea, or maybe you will go fight on behalf of the Somalis? Oh no- of course not- it is Israel that is ruining the world… Like I said, if only we were all as “educated” as you.

I grew up in Haifa where Druz are treated and behave the same way as every citizen in Israel. whether or not you support Israel, the truth is that our democracy allows Israeli Arabs and druz to be protected by the law. This can not be said about druz and Christians living in Arab countries. Thank you Debbie for spilling the beans.

I know many, many anti-zionist Jews who are welcome in my home any day. They are my brothers and sister. Then I know and know of far more Jews who are the most hateful, hated, despised and despicable people on earth. Debbie Schlussel is an example of those decrepit “people”. Most everyone hates those kind of Jews but don’t dare say it publicly. Those Jews will be their own downfall. They keep moaning and groaning about how they have been hated and discriminated again since the beginning of tgheir creation. Well, just consider this foul chick, Debbie, and Jewish Pam Geller, and all the other hatemongering Jews, and while you’re at it search “the truth about the Talmud. Be prepared for an explosive shock!

Jesse Colins on May 15, 2014 at 2:57 pm

Amost 90% of the media and celebrities in America are Jewish. They are constantly sending money and weapons to israel where they are killing the Palestinians with the latest guns, missiles, drones and aircraft. What do the Palestinians have? A few clapped out machine guns, hence the reason why they choose to attach bombs to themselves. You actually think as a Jew you are better. No. None of us are perfect but for once the Jews need to own up to their wrong doings.
As for the alamuddin familly, no one forced you to attend the wedding/ party. You could have left instead on insulting them. Not all muslims are olive skinned with dark hair. They are of every colour. Chinese, black, white.

Shabeena on May 15, 2014 at 6:32 pm

Amal Alamuddin is an accomplished young woman. Just Google her name to learn about her qualifications and accomplishments in respected media. To call her Sharmutah (whore) is outrageous. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Maliha on May 16, 2014 at 1:23 am

What are silly jealous slut Debbie is.

Hello on May 16, 2014 at 6:33 pm

I read this and thought it terribly amusing, yet sad. The writer seems to have the same traits of those she berates. It’s difficult to respect the person (or even take seriously) let alone the comments when they write use such intemperate language. That is the refuge of a person who is bitter and full of hate. She could have made a perfectly respectable argument had she not characterised an entire people in such negative terms and something just a tad more nuanced. She came across in exactly the same way as the people at the wedding. Oh, but wait. Some of her best friends are Druze. Yawn. Someone call a doctor. Ciao ciao – no, I’m not Italian so don’t start ranting about them. Much love.

Hatefulpeoplearesodull on May 18, 2014 at 1:45 pm

But isn’t george clooney. Jewish. He,s not worried why should anyone else

Brenda. Bentall on May 20, 2014 at 2:07 am

She is an opportunist, no disrespect intended as she seems like a nice girl. Don’t forget Clooney is also a seasoned one whose been round the Hollywood hole unscathed – He’ll go through waitresses and London educated lawyers like toilet roll :)

Woman spends her spare time trying to make herself look like a Shiksa while attacking people she knows nothing about.

sarah.m on June 5, 2014 at 4:42 pm

It seems like you are a big J-Bitch, Debbie. And please, stop using big words that I believe you do not understand, curses in Arabic and you are ***, god knows where you come from. Please get rid of the hatred in your heart, I know it will be hard since you were RAISED that way.

Megan on June 5, 2014 at 5:53 pm

That is really sad that you have to resort to such elementary tactics in referring to a very accomplished, beautiful and classy woman.

Such ugly words coming from an ugly person.

Tracey on June 12, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Debbie, I do not know what Amal allamudin is about, and it is really not important.
however, after reading your blog, I could sense your frustration, your envious nature, and your fury towards another woman who is beautiful, seems classy, and well educated. By comparison, when I googled a real picture of you, I understood your raging jealousy!! It is hard to be as ugly physically and mentally, as you are. not fair. however, raging at Amal will not change your ugly face, it will not change your lack of charisma, and will not change the arrested development your brain seems to suffer, due to hatred of mankind and an inferiority complex….
my advice, go on a diet, try a face lift,(might work), see a shrink for the disorder known as narcissistic psychopathy. all of this might help.

mitch jones on June 20, 2014 at 12:07 am

I really do not understand a thing it is not your F—- business who is with whom
You do not know anything about the Durez to start with.

Jack on June 26, 2014 at 6:33 pm

Dear Debbie,

Your post made me physically ill…IS your middle name by any chance KKK?
Just because George picked someone else and not you, doesn’t give you any right to attack the character of soon to be Mrs Clooney. Or her family for that matter.

On another note, I am a half Muslim (from my father’s side ) and a half Jew (from my mother’s side) [ I know- the best combination EVER... ].. I would really appreciate if you could stop posting such a offensive blogs…you are damaging our already damaged reputation..

I lost my two uncles in German concentration camps and I am telling you now they did not die so that Israel can slaughter Palestinians like lambs, on daily basis. Its shameful and inhuman and we all know it! I cannot believe that the World is tolerating this Genocide!
Please stop playing a victim and pulling the anti-Jew card.

I am very proud of my heritage and deeply saddened by the fact that on both sides (Muslims as well as Jews) there are assholes and haters like you.
I wish I could put you all in one big room (an asylum really), lock you up and trow the key away..
Shame on you

Phoenix on July 10, 2014 at 10:59 am

Lol this ugly Zionist is upset that George Clooney would never be attracted to her. Lebanese women are the sexiest in the Middle East! Israelis are obviously the ugliest.

Benjamin on July 11, 2014 at 4:11 am

Dear Debbie,
Are you really so uneducated that you can’t see that the genocide that took place against the jews in Germany, is today being replicated against the Palastinians. A blind eye is being turned. If Obama were to speak out, we all know he would be killed (pres Kennedy).
The likes of you are trying to keep up the media momentum and control over the masses with stories of islamic terrorists. THE BIGGEST TERRORISTS IN THIS WORLD ARE ZIONIST ISRAILI.
In my opinion all religion Stinks!!
God bless you moderate jews total respect.

angela sharif on July 19, 2014 at 7:26 am

He’s seeking a baby incubator and she’s seeking fame (and fortune). In other words, a relationship made in the proverbial hell…as soon as the baby is born he will be in any country in which she’s not. Knowing this he probably has an iron-clad pre-nup.

Hilda on August 29, 2014 at 3:37 pm

Wow, you know everyone in her family! how impressive, you know, you met George Clooney’s fiancee in the mid-90s and are familiar with the family, and her cousin and bla bla bla, but yea, Clooney ended up choosing her and not you. Get over yourself, that’s the kind of childish behavior you exude non-stop.

Sari on August 31, 2014 at 3:21 pm

George shame on you! YOU ARE a traitor in the first degree! Your marriage to amal will not last and just as one said, you will trample that like toilet paper..your pissed off BAD, because stacy keibler broke it off with you, and your ego cant take it…now you want to get revenge in the public eye with a foreign enemy…get lost George. Your not that great an actor.

yesorno on September 9, 2014 at 11:24 pm

Irena I would just like to say well said :) really you were so classy and didnt disrespect anyone, good on you. To be a non-mislim and say all the things you did shows that you respect Islam and all religions and most importantly knowledge. I have no other comment but had to tell you my thoughts cause your words touched my heart as a muslim and a humanbeing I really appreciate your truthful and kind words :)) thank you
